Scarlett Johansson's Lucy used to be just like the rest of us, until a bag of powerful drugs ruptured inside her stomach, giving her 100% use of her brain power. Watch as one woman becomes an inhuman being in the latest TV spot for director Luc Besson's new take on the superhero genre. While most of us only use 10% of our mental abilities, Lucy is using hers to the full extent, studying new languages, learning new fighting techniques, and becoming an all-around bad ass that will stop at nothing to avenge those who have done her wrong. Watch new footage before Lucy destroys a theater near you this summer.
From La Femme Nikita and The Professional to The Fifth Element, writer/director Luc Besson has created some of the toughest, most memorable female action heroes in cinematic history.
